Flagship Course on Post Disaster Needs Assessment and Resilient Recovery

Asian Disaster Preparedness Center

Post-disaster assessment involves the timely and accurate estimation of damages, losses, impacts, and needs across different economic and social sectors. The assessment feeds directly into recovery planning, which aims to re-establish basic public services to normalize socio-economic conditions after crises, as well as source capital investments for long-term reconstruction with "Build Back Better" approach as per the priority 4 of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR).

This two week course aims to build institutional arrangements and capacities to anticipate and prepare for post-disaster assessment and recovery, using internationally-accepted methodologies which are adapted to specific country requirements.
